I'm wondering if the scene is badassery or it is a person doing the badassery?

I bring this up as some badassery scenes may have multiple characters performing badassery that makes the whole scene's badassitude a high level.

Just watched The Road Warrior, so I better be seeing some Mad Max on here.

But great thread so far. Keep it coming.

Great Moments of Cinematic Badassery
Good Will Hunting - The Bar Scene



The verbal beatdown. He doesn't need to hack a dude with a sword, or shoot him in the face with a shotgun at point blank range, he simply completely makes a fool of the ponytail dude by calling him out for a complete fraud while ponytail guy is trying to impress a girl by being an a-hole.

It also has a nice tie in with this gem from Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back which has a fantastic parody tie in.

<3 Will Hunting

He was #10 on my Top 100 Movie Badass list and it was mainly because of this scene and the "Carmine! It's me Will. Remember? We went to kindergarten together," scene. Dude was the epitome of a badass.

But he was wrong. Will is almost guaranteed to have a better career than that [inappropriate/removed]. If nepotism isn't involved.

Great Moments of Cinematic Badassery
Gladiator - Are you not entertained?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FI1ylg4GKv8



This is a nice twofer of badassery. On the one hand you have the obvious hacking up a good half dozen guys with swords, naturally, pretty badass. On the other hand and what I find even moreso is the utter disdain he has for the crowd (even going so far as to throw his sword at the elites who could have him killed with a word). Just the look alone is awesome. One of my favorite scenes in one of my favorite movies. Am I not entertained? Yes Russell, yes I am.

Abso-friggin-lutely love that scene. That and the scene were he unmasks himself.
